Phase One of Building our Vision Approved!
The BoV Team is pleased that there was such strong support for moving forward with Phase I of our renovation project. This includes beginning the excavation of the east lawn for on-grade egress from Hardy Hall and the development of a community patio, and renovating the kitchen allowing us to not only address the vast majority of our safety concerns but also to begin to live into our vision as outlined in our Strategic Plan. We are also happy to announce that we will pay back the loan from the endowment that was used to kick-start Building our Vision by the end of this week.
BoV will now begin selecting a construction manager, refining costs, while we continue to solicit approvals from town boards and develop design details. We intend to remain as transparent and visible as we have been to date and will hold input sessions in the near future. Please let us know if you would like to be involved in this process. At the same time, we will also be reaching out to the community to solicit donations. Our church plays a vital role in our town and we are are confident that our neighbors will support our efforts.
We are always happy to hear from you at any point in the process!
